Debris Removal At 1st Floor Unit 3 Fukushima Underway

hitachi-astaco-sora-robotTEPCO mentions that debris removal work on the 1st floor of unit 3 is underway. The work had been on various planning documents but is now confirmed to be ongoing.

The work is being done by way of robotic equipment. The confirmation came as the SoRa robot developed an oil leak. This debris removal will help both robots and workers gain entry to more of the building. SoRa was built by Hitachi-GE. TEPCO does not state what prime contractor is doing the debris removal work. Both Hitachi-GE and Kajima have been involved in various work efforts at unit 3.
